Artist Gregory Euclide builds mixed-media pieces about man’s effect on nature from the very Styrofoam, resin, metal, stones, wood, and grass in question.
Euclide’s sculptural paintings start out as landscape drawings, depicting fancifully detailed wooded vistas and pastoral riverbeds polluted through human carelessness. Working on these compositional foundations, he uses found materials from nature and industry to construct low-relief sculptures that become semi-literal replicas of that which they seek to represent.

Because abundance emerged beneath the messy promise
As I understood treetops to be bottoms falling out
Torn from the making of knowing’s vista
Spreading a thin valley through time lines and till lines
Falling on schist from rows of growing plains
